Mucosal malignant melanoma (MMM) of the nasopharynx is extremely rare. We report a case of MMM of the nasopharynx in a 56-year-old male patient presenting with a polypoidal mass in the nasopharynx. It was increasing gradually and obstructing breathing. Computed tomography scan was suggestive of a malignant neoplasm in the nasopharynx. A biopsy of the lesion was done with a clinical suspicion of carcinoma. Microscopy revealed features suggestive of malignant melanoma with focal melanin pigmentation. Subsequently, wide local excision was done.
